The call came in shortly after 12:30 when the resident reported somebody had shot out a window of the home. Police searched the area but did not find the culprit.

The window was not shattered but police saw nine small holes in the window and impact rings surrounded some of the holes.

The holes were consistent with the size of air soft BB pellets, according to Sandwich Patrol Officer Paul Grigorenko. Some of the holes penetrated both panes of glass while others only penetrated one side.
